Hebrew Letters: The Aleph Bet

A chart showing Hebrew characters, their names, and their sounds.


The following chart–showing the Hebrew alphabet, known as the Aleph Bet after its first two letters–shows all the Hebrew consonants and their pronunciations in modern Hebrew. Some letters are written differently when they appear as the final character in a word; these alternates are listed in the chart. Vowels in Hebrew are indicated by certain dots and dashes that would appear under and beside the letters.
